I don't know, people are getting weird about them and paying well over $100 each - beats me as to why.
The "Bigfoot" "Blue Switch" and other odd backwater Fs are the ones to chop.
I did a quick search.
Someone from here did attempt to work with Unicomp - M'er Forever mocked up a modern SSK interpretation, and recall them saying they were going to come out with one? Nothing ever happened.

The discrete barrels of the AT, XT, and 122 allows rearranging the switches into ... pretty much any layout (just like Cherry/Alps) like my CSSK for example.
Yes, except ....
M'er Forever's design would have required tooling for new case, barrel frames, new membranes, new controller, etc. All big outlays for potential ... one or two thousand new sales. They would be betting that they could sell enough to cover the "Minimum Order Quantity". I would suggest that they dip a toe into the "super premium" market and just make F pivot plates (flippers) and use existing case, barrel frames, back plates.E TwentyNine wrote: ↑01 Feb 2019, 12:49Someone from here did attempt to work with Unicomp - M'er Forever mocked up a modern SSK interpretation, and recall them saying they were going to come out with one?

And that's something not too far off from current products. I have serious doubts anyone could convince them to spend any time on something as innovative as a modern cap keyboard.
All of them could realistically be considered "rare" except for the XT.
